I am a proud 76 years old single Black female here to play wordy, bingo and slots.. There have been lots of people who contact me and when they find out my true age and race they block me. It is not necessary to block me, because I never bother or interact with anyone who has a problem with who I am... whether the problem is with my age or race... both of which I am proud.
My profile pic says it all... and if it offends someone, I did not invite you here, and you are free to keep it moving onto wherever you think you should be on this website. The pink tank top is not going anywhere and neither am I.
peebeemsx5566: This is one that has been around for a long time; it found its way back to my email and I am sharing it now...
For all of you who have cell phones, have you ever thought of it this way?\
It's an eye opener and offers food for thoughts...
Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?
What if we refused to leave home without our Bibles the way we would never leave our cell phones?
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to our kids as gifts?
What if we used it when we travelled?
What if we used it in case of emergency?
This is something to make you go....hmmm...
Where is your Bible?
Oh, and one more thing.
Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill... and No Dropped Calls...
Makes you stop and think 'where are my priorities?
peebeemsx5566: A couple took a trip to the Holy Land and the husband decided to invite his mother-in-law. Before they even got there she was already complaining about the long flight and he knew he was in for a long trip. For two weeks they visited every major site from the bible. They walked the path that Jesus walked from where he was born in the manger to the tomb where the stone was rolled away. On one of the last days there the couple received some bad news from the hotel manager. A housekeeper had found the mother-in-law in her room dead of a heart attack. The manager informed them that they could take care of the arrangements and bury her in the holy land for only $200.00. If they decided to take her back to the U.S. the expense of preparing the body for the trip and the flight would run about $5,000.00. The husband said he would think about it and let him know the next day. The next day the hotel manager saw the husband in the lobby and asked him if he had made a decision. "I decided to take her back home for the $5,000.00" He told the manager. "That's fine" said the manager "But do you mind me asking why since we can do it here for just $200.00". "Well I've been thinking about it", said the husband, "And in the two weeks that we've been here all I've heard about was this man that they crucified and buried and then three days later he arose from the grave. For $4800.00 I'm not willing to take that chance!"
peebeemsx5566: Another Corny Joke... An Oldie but Goodie
An elderly woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services when she was startled by an intruder. She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled, "Stop! Acts 2:38 (Repent and be baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven.) The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done. As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar, "Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you." "Scripture?" replied the burglar. "She said she had an ax and two 38's!"
peebeemsx5566: All emotes can be made by putting words between colons like :this:
peebeemsx5566: This is an open response to something that happened between a person whom I thought was a good online friend... ALAS I was removed from the friend's list and we no longer chat... I won't mention any names, but I will share what I wrote in my last message.. I am not doing this for any other reason than I expressed my opinion...
It occurred after an online discussion about the officers in Dallas, Texas were slain...
I understand how you might feel about the slain officers... my favorite cousin [a former Washington, DC policeman] was killed when he responded to a domestic dispute... in the line of duty. But this is one of the many reasons why I didn't and no longer care to discuss what happened to those officers in Dallas or wherever else police are killed.
You asked before you logged off... "did they kill anybody". I don't know if they killed anybody during their times as officers. But, I do know nobody who isn't Black can possibly understand how it feels to have innocent Black boys and men killed by policemen all over the USA, most of the time for no reason, and nothing is being done about it or to stop it. Its as though its open season on ways to kill Black men and women...
I do not condone senseless murders by anybody [policemen or civilians]... and when I said what I said. it was out of frustration and sometimes disgust because no one feels that BLACK LIVES MATTEER... except maybe another Black person.
It was not right that these officers were ambushed and killed in the manner in which they were; but think about this... had that young man NOT been taught to kill by the military, with his mental problems, maybe he would not have taken such drastic action as he felt he had to do. NO, I am not taking up for him, or making excuses, because it takes a sick mind to do what he did. Unfortunately, it is going to happen again and again, because when there is no justice there can not be any peace.
You are a white person living in another country, and you only know how bad things are for Black people in USA from the media... unfortunately as a Black woman in the USA I have lived and experienced unspeakable racism, bigotry, hatred, prejudices... simply because of the color of my skin. I was not raised to hate anybody, and I don't... even though I could...
I've said all this to say that if you decide we can no longer be friends, that is your choice. BUT being true friendships do not stop when one says something which is not in agreement by the other. Friendships should not end because of differences of opinions, because where opinions are concerned, popular or not, everybody is entitled to his or her own.
I'm sure I will get a lot of "feedback" about this but, I still stand by every word I wrote.
vininirl: Ther are many white people myself included that believe in equality for all.. It is sad that the USA has not progressed in its beliefs of equality
Where it leaves TRUMP and his supporter frightens me for one....
But i am on the outside looking in
peebeemsx5566: There are so many superficial, phony, game playing guys [females too] on this internet. The sad part of the stupidity and ignorance of these people is that they don't have sense enough to keep the names of the people to whom they spew their lies and foolishness... is simply... they get so caught up in the crap they can't even keep the names straight. Pitiful, sad, misguided people... need to get a life...
But I guess the fact that they are online playing games and being deceitful is the only life they have...
